stop the promotion of skin-bleaching creams in magazines aimed specifically at black women sign now

The use of skin lightening creams is shockingly prevalent among women in developing countries. These products are also being promoted in African American womens' magazines; such as EBONY.

These magazines claim to promote the rich black heritage of their readers, but i consider this to be a contradiction.

I am worried that by promoting these skin bleaching creams, they are becoming associated with a successful and aspirational lifestyle and don't think that this should continue any further.

I have written a letter to EBONY magazine asking for an explanation as to why they think it is acceptable to promote skin bleaching creams in their magazine.

You can read a copy of the letter I have sent to EBONY magazine here : http://rukaj.livejournal.com/#item371
